Yesterday, yes; yester-day
A poem paid me a brief visit
It was the greatest poem that man ever wrote and read
Greater than Desiderata and The Path Not Taken
It’d have made you cry and laugh in painful pleasure
It’d have negotiated with my gnawing poverty
It’d have endeared me to my future mother of our children
It’d have fetched me modest and kind In-laws
Off it flew!
And left me with vague shadows
Of skeletal memories
